Standard features on today's gloves include: Lacing through the fingers and welting (the stitching up the middle of each finger found on the back of the glove)
In the 1920's most players and manufacturers believed that fingers bound by string would constrict play, not assist it
The acceptance of the laced glove wouldn't happen until the late 1940's and early 1950's when the Ken-Wel patent expired, other manufacturers copied it, and a new generation of players embraced the concept
